[SailfishDevel] How to automatically start a daemon with systemd

I have put my .service file under systemd/system –folder and used systemctl enable (not -user) and it starts successfully at boot.
I start it without invoker (ExecStart directly calls the executable)

(But I need root access for the daemon)

Subject: [SailfishDevel] How to automatically start a daemon with systemd

Hi all,
I'v written a small personal (not looking for harbour approval here) C++ app which periodically connects to a web service and displays some information into a notification via DBus.
This is the .service file which I've deployed in /etc/systemd/user:

Description=My own daemon

ExecStart=/usr/bin/invoker --type=generic /usr/bin/myowndaemon


after the usual:
systemctl-user daemon-reload
systemctl-user start myowndaemon.service
it correctly starts.
Now if I issue a:
systemctl-user enable myowndaemon.service
and I reboot my Jolla, it doesn't automatically start.
This is my first attempt with systemd, I tried googling around but I didn't find anything helpful.
Wht am I missing?
Thanks a lot,

Luca Donaggio
